and now for something a bit different.my lovely dancing friend Lydia, was my first egg customer! When my beautiful young hens started laying their eggs, she was first in line to buy a dozen, and now she gets them almost every week from me. I love that… that’s as local as it gets, and fresh and organic eggs from well loved chooks!
but what was even more special was what she wrote to me, after cooking the eggs the following morning for her two little girls.
“The Best Ever” out of the mouths of my babes. Tucker is quite the foody and really appreciated the finer qualities of farm fresh. Today is a late school opening all over Portland Public Schools so we had the chance to make a lovely slow scumptuous breakfast. I fixed 2 smaller eggs each for the girls. I crack them into a small fry pan with a little spray canolla oil and bit of butter. Then as the white begins to firm and turn color I add about a tablespoon of water to the pan and put the lid on it for another minute or so. This poaches them to doneness. And you have a “pink egg” (the yellow looks pink
with the lightly poached film over it) Then I cracked Dolly’s egg for myself and guest what – she gave us twins!!! That is so fun to see twins come glopping out.
So anyway – thanks for the yummy breakfast –
That makes is all worthwhile…
